We don’t have a babyphone. In fact, we had one, but we never used it. And it seems like we’re the only ones. Also today, we had visitors with children that needed to take a nap in the afternoon. When sitting outside, you don’t hear them waking up so the parents are anxious as they will not hear their baby cry when it wakes up. (The bedroom is upstairs at the other side of the house).
A babyphone app would solve the inconvenience quick and easy – I install the app on one of the available smartphones around and I’ll place it in the bedroom of where the child is sleeping. The app works with and without video. The other smartphone with (receiving) app works through push & sound notifications so one get alerted when the child is awake. The parent on the other hand can check in whenever (s)he wants and check whether everything is ok at the other end.
I can imagine the stress levels would diminish gigantic ly as the parents involved that are less unease (with the situation having fun outside while their kid sleeps elsewhere). A great advantage is that distance isn’t a limited anymore. An internet connection suffice.
